The history of «La Maison de la Bonbonniere de Marie» is intimately
tied to the history of the Champ de Mars park and Eiffel Tower.
From the creation of l’ecole militaire (the military school) in 1751 and the Bastille day In July 14 th 1790, to the Eiffel tower construction in 1889, the Champ de Mars experienced many different events including the creation of “La Maison de la Bonbonniere de Marie”
This little green paradise became the place to be with it’s little chalets classified as historical monuments.
The century swings has seen many generations of children since the first foundations built for Napoléon III.
It’s on this historical place that Véronique Lemesle moved in
on 1985. At first she was selling sweets before transforming the place
to a family institution.
With a striking view on the Eiffel tower, Véronique Lemesle had the idea to create the spinning Eiffel Tower Spintop which won a medal at the “Lépine invention contest” in 2003.
There is an ingrave under the spinning Eiffel Tower Spintop, to represent “la bonbonniere de Marie”, and to guarantee the authenticity and made in France.
